Read the guide.
August loot arrived. The 2 boxes are grab boxes (once again).
This is the smaller box. Pretty bad. I'm going to resell everything most likely.
>tfw 100% totally out of room to store boxes in the cupboard and have to resort to just keeping the boxes on the ground under your desk
And here is the larger box. This one was really good. I might keep the Haruhi chains.
Medakadonk is really good so far. Might post pictures of her later on.
I mean, I see what they were going for. No wonder customs were so keen on it.
Well records were set today. I just finished watching MM: Rebellion for the first time, really thought I was going to hate it but holy shit it was good...
Ended up blowing my figure limit for the month in one go on pic related.
>TFW I get turned on by her sneer
How much is your guy's monthly fig budget? I'm trying to figure out something good for myself.
finally manned up and went buyfagging online to grab my
waifu. glad I didn't make a mistake
now one main question remains - Murmeltier, Altrene or Orbellen?
What do you have coming in the mail? This is what I'm getting today
I spend as much money in a month as I want to. It's not object. No price is too high for the privilege of owning plastic butts.
Although, I only ordered three things this year.
>The rest are seriously awful.
But that's not entirely true.
I suppose mine might be a little low, but I usually go with about a max of $200 a month.
As in, when I preorder a fig I put that money aside, that way no matter when they come out I already have the money waiting. If its not a preorder I just buy it and subtract that from my available preorder cash.
Just this little guy right now. Already received several books this month, one of which was that venus artbook.
>Even amiami is prepared for F/SN
Just take my fucking money already and stop this bullshit.
Amiko has teamed up with Ufotable and Aniplex to takes as much money as possible especially from Gaijins.
I wonder how much money amiami/mandarake give people who sell them their figures.
Their rates are probably as jewish as a place like gamestop's. Makes you wonder why anybody would even sell to them rather than on yahoo auctions or something.
too bad that there are only two so-so figures of best homu.
I just got into buyfagging earlier this year and don't hang out at /toy/ much.Unlike Ach, I don't have any emotional attachment to the other 3.
well maybe a little to Altrene because of that PSP game.
Her early release completely threw off my orders, so now my 20k order turned into a 50k one and I still haven't bought risers for my Nanoha Shelf, either.
Not that I care, I'm just happy to get another Nanoha
Sakura Saber is fine, brah. But the pose GSC decide to go with is just godawful.
I'm picky, so i don't really have a monthly budget. My next order is in 2015.
I'd have liked a Imca figure, but the base looks horrible. Went with the nendo instead
I have that fig.
It's great, but holy fuck the base is fucking stupid. I will never forgive Volks for that.
It might look visually neat, but it's completely unbalanced. I hate to prop the figure against the wall of the cabinet to keep it upright.
The Riela figurine looks terrible unbalanced too.
I don't know much beyond high school physics but something tells me that thing has a very delicate center of mass.
I finally managed to hunt down all three Yunocchi plushies, the newest one being the ED version in the middle.
They're easily the top 3 cutest of my Yuno collection.
I don't know anon. In the last 20 minutes she was all about the power-trip sneer. I think it captures her attitude at the movie's end pretty spot on.
I also preordered pic related which reminds me much more of the original anime Homu. Together I think I have the whole package covered.
For people who wanted this but could not afford: the price is plummeting right now on Amazon. Jump on it while you can!
No limit on money but 2-3 figures max. I'm very picky either way so I never really get to that point, and there are months I don't buy anything at all. On avg it's $100 max, probably.
>New and sealed Koto prize figure arrives.
>Tip of the hammer was snapped off.
Fucking dick cunt shit.
I wish there were more merchandise.
I'd buy the shit out of keychains at this point
I try to keep it low but most of the times it goes from 100$-400$. Sometimes when I have less than 100$ on preorders I buy something from my figure backlog and I end up spending more.
Left one is from Yahoo, the other two Yunocchis from suruga-ya. All of them unopened and in perfect condition!
Well above their original price though, but you just can't hold back when you're in love.
Still cheaper than the two official daki covers overall.
That's indeed nicer than the other school uniform one, but the kimono version is really detailed and well made too for a plushie. It's just a shame how her hair colour is a little off.
She just arrived at my post office (along with a Amy nend and a Mug).
>mfw I am out in the field for another 2 days and have something exciting to look forward to when I get home.
can you take your bait somewhere else faggot? or are you seriously this retarded?
This is cheaper on N-Y than Big In Japan and I can pay when it's released there.
Where is the catch
aside from >n-y?
I read the buyfag link and all and it said that rereleases aren't too common because this is a niche market.
Is there any hope of me being able to find a kanade figure in good condition or new? I checked all the links but I think it's discontinued because of how it's several years old now.
I ordered yukino but it seems literally everywhere is sold out on kanade
There will never be a scale of Naoto better then this prize figure will there?
But thats why I'm asking.
I've heard someone complain that they got a bootleg from them, but I don't think they can pull this shit on made to order exclusives.
I know they skimp a bit on packaging, but my orders always arrived intact.
I just want to know if there is something more to be aware of, since this will be my first time ordering a made to order figure.
>1/10 Rinko Iori 16cm tall approx
>1/10 high school girls from precure, saki,etc 16cm tall
to scale my ass
I told myself i'd pre-order butt-booster Miku if I managed to get a job.
I was hired somewhere yesterday! life is beautiful /a/.
>this retarded as fuck face
he looks like a gaddamn marshmellow
I always thought Psycho Pass figures would be cool. And they would be if it weren't for being badly made. Even the lanky style they chose would look good if it weren't just a bad make.
This looks like a prize figure. How the fuck is it 8k yen? Who in their right mind would buy it?
Say what you will about GSC and nendos but fuck, at least they could make Akane look like her character and good as a nendoroid.
I have been placing all of my boxes in a big TV box too. Then I ran out of space 3 years ago, now my entire storage closet is a box dungeon.
Also, newest load.
I own two scales scales of Chihaya (A-Edition from Megahouse) and this old one http://myfigurecollection.net/item/4299 and both are fine in my opinion.
I would buy BD anime cover figure too though.
Make sure to buckle up before using her butt thrusters. I hear the vibration they produce is semen-demon level but can chop your dick off if you're not properly secured.
Effectively infinite cause I make 75k a year and live with my parents b/c its so close to my job. but i'm super picky about what I buy. Only buy maybe 2 scale figs a year and 1 nedo? The rest is on cheaper stuff, like manga and artbooks.
No self control, I order on impulse and remorse heavily each time.
I also quit my job while still having around 20 preorders for the next 4 months.
Granted, Mandarake has already banned me.
I dont have one because I only buy 2-3 figures per year.
My actual "spend money on useless shit" budget is around $300 a month. It's used for electronics, dakimakuras, onaholes, video games, etc.
About $200, but sometimes it goes over, and I've been trying to budget since I need new clothes and stuff, and to save up to move out.
I might even have to drop buyfagging altogether for awhile. ;-;
I think they have a cord as well, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. I doubt I'll ever use the speakers though, I just like the look. Frankly, I wish I had blue LEDs on my AKGs, as that's what I wanted in the first place, so I think these will be neat.
Although I'll probably end up getting green like I do with everything, haha.
I was sure the Sorceress would get delayed to this month so I SAL'd the Amazon in advance, she's still out there while the Sorc arrived today.
Key word being "approx." I don't see the Precure girls being bigger than China here, and Rinko's clearly in scale with her.
It's the same manufacturer.
It's just a webcomic artist who designed the headphones in a few of her artworks, and since so many people wanted them, she decided to make them real. Her quality might be iffy, but I think they'll be okay. She doesn't seem the type to settle for shit.
Although I've been wrong about webcomic artists before.
I'm looking at you, Tessa Stone.
>there'll never be a reason to make real cat-eared headphones
Hm, interesting. I don't dislike how they look, but I doubt I'd ever use the speakers, and I already have a set of headphones that I like. Plus I don't really like spending that much on electronics without knowing what the quality will be like. It'd suck to spend $150 and have it be uncomfortable and sound bad.
Do you guys ever think about what'll happen to all your stuff if you die? I'd like to think I'd have kids to pass them on to, but that's a low probability.
I'd want them all melted down and made into a coffin, with all my DVDs inside with me.
I only make 32k working from home. She likes that I clean the house, prepare lunch and dinner, and am around if she needs something. I'm pretty much in charge of the finances too, so I could fudge numbers if I wanted to. I don't have an allowance, but she doesn't want me to go too wild with her money.
"as long as I can eat and my electricity doesn't get shut off."
That's a limit buddy.
Don't fudge numbers anon, real fucking bad idea, take it from me.
But yea spend all that cash that shit is golden.
My figures would mostly find a new home.
My siblings and parents would keep a few, the rest would be sold.
They would likely throw away the sex toys in a most wasteful fashion....
In my will they're supposed to be left to my little brother along with my laptop. On his 16th, he's supposed to get the password, and directions to a .txt document telling him what to look for...
And then he'll slowly become one of us...
Didn't you watch the show?
It looked flatter in the show
My first figures came in today. Fate and Nanoha from the first movie. My little sister say them (18yr) She just kept calling me gay all day. Now I am at work and don't want to go home. How long will I have to endure this?
Well, it might not be god tier but that gives me hope for Aquamarine's Chris
Grow some balls, at this point your sister has more than you.
> How long will I have to endure this?
Dunno, maybe she just wants you to buy something more sexy...
There must be a reason.
>MFW Miku's appearance on the David Letterman show causes miku products to triple in value.
Every day until Laura's -Bunny Style- figure by Kotobukiya is up for preorders.
Based Amazon Japan is sending me a new artbook to replace the damaged one I got. They basically said do whatever the hell I want with the one I already have. Their English support is quite decent too.
I'd feel kind of bad pushing my luck as an international customer, but they sent that shit in a bubble mailer. It arrived with a very bent corner even after DHL shipping speeds.
TMNT from GSC. Odd. At least it's their classic look and not the movie designs.
I wouldn't have, and I wouldn't make a habit of it, but it was fairly significant creasing through the whole book. You can see where the envelope was bent too.
The other ones I've gotten from them showed up fine because I ordered enough that they used a box.
It is a wonderful smell. That and freshly unwrapped books and doujinshi.
>Due to the nature of the goods, specific authorization is required from a regulatory authority other than Customs for further clearance
There's nothing illegal in there, you fuckers. Now give me my perfectly harmless pillowcase.
Searched that up for more info and found this dude talking about it
>GSC is going to be selling these nendos for $45
>Good to see Miku getting more exposure
It's a really pretty book. Those pictures were after I straightened it out some too. I might put some weight on it for a while just to flatten it back out. Now I hope the new one gets here fine.
Only way you'll find them for that price now is if you manage to get one from the NY or LA events before they sell out.
Though in a few months I bet they'll be 3.5-4k on Mandarake.
The Miku Expo is live. But are the stores selling the Halloween Nendo yet?
If you want singles of shit that usually comes in boxes like straps or trading figures, they're not horrible for that.
But Cons are shit, and you'd be better off just using the entry cost to buy a case of whatever little shit you'd buy there.
More like more work for the guy who helps him , jump to the 3 minutes mark for the second dude.
Speaking as somebody who did practically the same exact thing at UPS, he really isn't because walking each box from the stack to the belt is a lot more work than just dropping it on to the belt when the packages are all piled right next to it.
The last time I used it, it took a little over a week. This time it's been 11 days and it still says it's in California but with their shitty tracking, it's probably at my post office for all I know. I can't imagine waiting for a figure sized box to get put on a plane. EMS makes you impatient as fuck.
I had a moment of insanity and thought he'd have teasers for something like
KH3 or FFXV.
Now that I know it's just for more Miku, I'm a little irked.
Unless they actually started using the other fucking Vocaloids they have, then I'd probably be hype.
Well, you're in luck because it's a May release.
Is this going to be an actual daki cover?
Yes, also, the bonus items for Animte/Melonbooks/Toranoana are looking mighty brown.
Actually, that's what I got on the mail today.
There was a guide book dump the other day. Unfortunately, only 10 girls at "What ifs" endings. The majority of it was character profiles and tons of text.
My first time ordering. And for my first time I picked one that's still in pre-order.
Just one question. Does the "Status" here in the purchase history change once shipped or do I need to manually check elsewhere?
Ofcourse I haven't received a tracking number yet as it hasn't even been released but just wanted to ask ahead.
I haven't read the guide book yet but it had 2 things inside.
1 was stickers from Darkness which are very cute and nonlewd.
2 was some card about ShonenJump so I'm guessing just adds.
As for the book, I fucking loved it but I'm confused as fuck because outside of the plastic cover for the book even outside on the plastic wrap there was a small plastic bag with nothing on it attacked to it.
I also found out I had some other figures I hadn't freed out of their box due to being busy for almost 3 months now. I got them out and took some pictures but I still got to resize them. One of them is Mea but I literally screamed very high when I saw that her hair attachment was freely flying inside the box, the figure itself had 3 things that look bad.
The first was a small black dot that seemed like paint transfer of some sort on the leg.
The second was a black dot on her frills on her waist which is meant to be transparent.
The last and most important was the hair attachment and the purple ball on her braid were damaged possibly from first testing out if they fit properly so I blame whoever put her together for the first time. Paint transfer on both ends.
It's a calendar poster, so a single huge B2 calendar.
Contact GSC about it. I did and got a new figure within a week. Mine only had the broken hairpiece though, no paint transfer problems or anything.
Replacement figure came in perfect condition.
Is the a lagann model anywhere? I don't mean Gurren Lagann, just Lagann. I figured it's too small to be an actual kit otherwise I'd gtfo to /m/.
Here, this is what I saw that couldn't get done.
The spot on the leg is hardly visible after a little rub.
Similar to the break I had. Some people on MFC had it too so I suppose it's not too uncommon.
Excuse the terrible pic.
Switch out Venus for Honey is one of mine, and pic related for the other.
What's the difference between pink Re-release and blue Re-release on amiami?
This one. Read the guide all the way through since I knew absolutely nothing of the hobby so I decided to play safe and go for the top listed Good Smile.
That, and Juubei is cute.
No problem. However, you had the ball on the end of her hair while mine is at the end of her braid. Also, yours didn't have the end of her hair dancing about in an empty bubble with the padding just for decoration did you?
I'm waiting for some Free! phones to show up in the mail. They should be here tomorrow, but unfortunately I also take off for Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I won't see the packages until Tuesday.
It' not a daki, comes with a large print of it, though it wouldn't be surprising if it was a daki sized print on some sort of fabric.
That would be super nice.
Mine was freely bouncing around in that bubble too originally. When GSC shipped out the replacement they covered it in bubble wrap to protect it. Just make sure to explain that it was broken on arrival.
And actually, if that thing on the right is a handle looks like the illustration is printed at about 1/2.5 scale
Google search Miku figures. They are selling out like hot cakes on ebay and amazon.
3/4 of them will back the fuck up when they realize how much statues go for.
Bootleggers are the ones that will rejoice from this.
There is one actually. You just have to assemble it by buying all the other 4 ichiban kuji mini Ganmen (each one comes with a part of Lagann included).
How is Gentei Kits, has anyone ever ordered from there before? I want to get the HWS for the Hi Nu and it is by far the cheapest there.
Is Toranoana generally shit with preorders or am I just unlucky? Because I ordered some shit two days ago and it got to the proxy before the stuff I preordered that was supposed to be released a week and a half ago.
I don't know about preorders, but tora is inconsistent with shipping out stuff in general. It took them a week to ship out a doujin and 3 doujin CDs to me.
At least you can pick a day/time, unlike most other doujin stores.
shit looks gloriously flat, this should be the official alt body
